Abstract

Utilizing the 1980 and 1990 USA censuses and Blinder-Oaxaca decompositions, we examine the extent of discrimination across women and men by ancestry and race. The charge that Blinder-Oaxaca decompositions indicate cultural rather than discriminatory differentials is addressed with two futher experiments - one that controls for color and varies culture, and one that controls for culture and varies color.
